Sarah’s was well represented at last week’s Homeless Day on the Hill. In addition to our staff, a few of Sarah’s residents attended as well. We had a wonderful opportunity to share our concerns regarding more affordable and permanent housing.
The Voices of Sarah’s… an Oasis for Women
“Some of us need help to start ourselves out in life, a place to make our dreams come true.”
“I have confidence. I am facing risky challenges,hard work, and believe I can do it.”
“Before I came to Sarah’s, I had a very difficult life. At Sarah’s, I have peace, quiet time. I have a place to sleep and rest.”
“This is the right place for me. I had a lot of problems before I came to Sarah’s. I don’t know how to describe them. I started going to college because of Sarah’s house, I got my certificate for Nursing Assistant because of Sarah’s house. I don’t know what I would have done without Sarah’s house. I have had very deep feelings about going to school but I couldn’t get opportunities until I came to this house. Thank You.”
“We are from different countries and we speak different languages, and every day we learn from each other.”
“I am safe.”
Sarah’s is a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Paul Province, since 1996.
